Interesting Peroxide information.

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

I KNEW about some of these but some are new to me.

1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when I bathe)

No more canker sores and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash. (Small print says mouth wash and gargle right on the bottle)

2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of "Peroxide" to keep them free of germs.

3. Clean your counters, table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.

4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.

5. I had fungus on my fee t for years - until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.

6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine, but was healed by so aking in peroxide.

7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.

8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, or plugged sinuses. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes then blow your nose into a tissue.

9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

10. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages, but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, reddish, or dirty blonde . It also lightens gradually so it's not a drastic change.

11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections.

12. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

13. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors with, and there is no smearing which is why I love it so much for this.

I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without! With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner.

    I had heard of this before but have been lazy using it. I also forget easily. I will try to remember. My mom has told me about this and uses it to get out splinters. It boils up and the splinter loosens up. Thanks Reese.

    I actually have 2 bottles on my kitchen counter. I attached a sprayer and use one full strength and the other diluted. I never thought of using it to clean nostrils - I'll try it. emoticon

    Thank you for this information. I did not know any of this. Since I dislike the dentist greatly, I may take your advice about the peroxide for whiter teeth and tooth pain, but maybe not as often or for as long.

I will be buying a bottle of peroxide this week. I will also be saving this blog as a reference. Thanks again!!!

    We are reminded of something useful everyday.

I use it to clean fruits and veggies, after rinsing them give them a quick spray of straight peroxide and let air dry. (That suggestion came from an oncologist)

And Reese, you go to the same dentist I do? Got the same advice from the hygenist on Monday!

And the series continues!

    This is wonderful information! I love peroxide too! But you added uses that I was not aware of! Just some additional information that may be useful: Recently at a dentist appointment I was told that I should discontinue my daily use of peroxide. It seems that not only does perioxide kill all the bad bacteria while rinsing, but the good bacterias too! She suggested I rinse with peroxide only once or twice a week.

Great blog!

Day 6 & Go Yankees!!

Monday, November 02, 2009

They are 1 win away from a World Series win!! WOO HOO! I don't know if I want them to win it all tonight in Philadelphia or wait and win it at home in their new stadium. I was up at 5:30 this morning and watched the game from the 2nd inning on but fell asleep for an hour or so.

This is day 6 of the 8 cups of water every day and I still get up every hour on the hour during the night to go to the bathroom. So much for getting 8 hours of sleep every night.

I have been doing my Leslie Sansone Walk Away The Pounds videos every day for a week now. Still only at 2- 2 1/2 miles at a time but I'm getting there.

A new month

Sunday, November 01, 2009

I typed this up once and it didn't post
A new month for new goals:
Increase my exercise to 90 minutes a day
Hope to get up early enough to go outside and walk. If I don't get up by 8:15AM it's too hot to walk.
Lose at least 2 lbs a month. 3 would be GREAT but I'm trying to be realistic.

I just saw a blog post from my friend with cancer. She has lost all her hair :( She is such a strong person and is enduring all this with dignity. I am still sad for her.

  


It's NOT Halloween here!

Saturday, October 31, 2009

It's not celebrated and it's forbidden here but I guess since it's a big thing in America, then it SHOULD be celebrated EVERYWHERE in the world, right? America rules the world!

I got down another 8 cups of water today, did 70 minutes of exercise. It was a good day!

October 31 reminder

Friday, October 30, 2009

I really wish people would realize that day is NOT CELEBRATED in EVERY country in the world. I realize SparkPeople is a US based web site, but Americans are under the impression that just because something is celebrated/observed OR recogonized in the US that is SHOULD be in EVERY country in the world. That is so not true but people don't want to listen to that. It is NOT celebrated or observed here and it's forbidden! I chose not to celebrate it because I have no one to celebrate it with, no kids here anymore and no American or Western kids on the compound.

YANKEES WON LAST NIGHT! Woo Hoo! I got up somewhere around the 7th inning and the score was 2-1 so I went back to bed.

Today is laundry, cleaning day. 3 loads of laundry, tried to vacuum but the vacuum cleaner just doesn't work, cleaned up the kitchen, straightened up the bedroom. I also need to get up stairs and do my exercise.

    I don't celebrate halloween except for a party at the friendship club and its not really a halloween party. We have no trick or treaters because its a home where old people live and we lock the doors at 8:00 pm. They would have to come in early to get in. I haven't seen a trick or treater in 3 years. My daughter brings my grandson by to get his candy and to show me his costume. Sorry about your vacuum and don't forget housework is considered exercise too so count that too. It will add up.

    I don't know if it is the US who wants everyone to celebrate it or the various companies, but I agree with you. In school we do not talk about it because there are some children who do not celebrate it so it cannot be talked about.

Game three Saturday night. Yuck, 106, that is why I left Arizona and moved back east...too hot. I know you do not have a choice and are making the most of it. Keep drinking the water.

Sorry about the vacuum.
